A key feature and advantage of a specialist asthma clinic is the opportunity for data collection and analysis. This approach can improve the quality of treatment for the individual patient, by building on previous treatment histories and experience.
It provides an opportunity for quality control assessment and continuous improvement of services. Further, it can provide relevant research opportunities, which can benefit severe asthma management more broadly.
Severe Asthma Registries, such as Australasian Severe Asthma Network and the Australian Mepolizumab Registry provide an excellent tool for data capture and allow for subsequent evaluation.
